The Ceremony

Our unique offering at Rock Farm Slane combines a high-end service in beautiful natural surroundings. We can offer a beautiful spider tent in our packages which is a great option for couples to have their ceremonies on the glamp site.

You may choose to have your wedding ceremony in one of the local Churches in nearby Slane Village or perhaps you are looking to host a humanist or shamanic celebration onsite. Either way we can provide you with an experienced venue-based coordinator to guide you through the process, celebrants and other specialist services such as wedding coordinator, catering, flowers, hair and beauty. Couples looking to host a civil ceremony/civil partnership at Rock Farm Slane would need to contact Meath County Council Registrar directly for pre-authorisation for approval of venue.
